Search continues for Lowell woman missing from N. Myrtle

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The search for Amy Arrington continues along the beach in North Myrtle, where her husband said she disappeared over the weekend.

Police are considering another possibility.

Police spokesman Pat Dowling said they've been in touch with police in other states, searching for Amy Arrington or whoever she claims to be now.

Court records have three other names for her: Amy Robinson, Amy Goebel and Amy Sutton. Her history of fraud goes back 10 years in Mecklenburg County.

Prison records show she went to prison in February 2006 on fraud charges and was released at the end of 2008.

She's charged now with using another woman's account information to make payments of hundreds and even thousands of dollars to buy things on Amazon, pay a cable bill and pay a bank bill of almost $7,500.

She was scheduled to go to trial in May, but got a note from the hospital in Gastonia saying she was in the emergency department.
Channel 9 went to her last address in Mount Holly on Tuesday afternoon, but was told she hasn't been there for months.

Eyewitness News couldn't reach her husband by phone today either.

If she is alive and running, police said it's just a matter of time.

“Ultimately, I think the truth is that somebody is going to find her. It's kind of hard to hide forever in this world,” Dowling said.
